The Many Flavors of Yakult Cultured Milk Drink (A Singapore Beverage Post)

Nope.  The title's not a typo error.  Yakult cultured milk drink does have many flavors.  Here in Singapore, anyway.  There are, in fact, 4 different varieties to choose from...

So who hasn't enjoyed Yakult?  That cultured milk drink; a sweet concotion with a slightly tart aftertaste.  Oh!  And they're full of Lactobacillus casei Shirota strain that aids in digestion and a host of other benefits.

I remember trips to the grocery store would not be complete without at least 2 packets of these babies since just like Pringles, "once you pop (one open), you can't stop!"  I'd usually have 2 bottles at a time, all the while cursing the manufacturers, as I was nearing the end of all that milky goodness, for making these Yakult servings so dang small!

I never did outgrow my fondness for Yakult, apparently, so did the Hubby who has since replaced my Bro as my intense competitor for the last remaining bottle in a pack.  More so now that we are enjoying not 1, not even 2, but 4 different flavors of Yakult here in Singapore!

The many flavors of Yakult

There's the original.  Of course, it's still a favorite.

But aside from that, Yakult in grape, orange and apple flavors are also offered here in the Lion City.

Serving sizes are a little bigger here too, with Yakult being available at 100ml bottles as compared to only 80ml sizes sold in the Philippines.  A 5-pack container (containing 2 original flavors and 1 each of the 3 other variants) sells for S$2.85 (Php94*)

Now excuse me while I hide all the remaining Yakult from Hubby...  J

*S$1 = Php33

Yakult cultured milk drinks are available in all leading grocery stores nation (Philippines) and island (Singapore)-wide.

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
